Hi there, out of nowhere my KK stopped booting up. It turns on, "KingKORG" shows on screen, but that's it. I was able to put it into "update mode" and update the firmware to 1.1.3, hoping it would reset something - but no luck. I was able to update to latest firmware, but still the same. It freezes after turning it on.

Any idea? Is there a factory hard reset via some button combination similar to bringing the KK into update-mode?

Hi,

That does not sound very well I'm afraid. Something is broken...
There is no hard reset as far as I know. And that would typically reset the global settings and the factory patches.

You can try (at your own risk) the test modes, described in the service manual.
https://www.synthxl.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/KORG-KINGKORG-Service-Manual.pdf
to see whether this reveals something that can help you further, but I am afraid your synth needs service.
Question is whether it is repairable and at which cost....

Good luck

Thanks for sharing that PDF, I also contacted the Korg Support and see what they suggest. If there is nothing they can do without sending it in for a (costly) service, I will go and check the test modes you suggested. I will report back.
